I was just handed this new tool the other day. I have experience shooting the M14 in the presidents 100 etc but the EBR platform is new to me.
I was wondering if anyone could give me a few tips on some non permanent upgrades that I could do (trigger etc) to increase the effectiveness of this rifle. Ill have to give it back the way i got it in about a year.
Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

We had them down range... much better than the earlier M21s we had in OIF I , mainly due to ergonomics. Not much you really have to do to the EBR, but I’ve been eyeing this trigger kit:

Some common easy upgrades are, Getting a trigger shoe to help with pistol grip ergonomics and shimming the gas system is a good idea too (if needed)

Granted, I'm tooting my own horn, but trigger is a big upgrade.
1. Curvature of the traditional trigger bow is sub-optimal for the EBR, because the angle of your hand with the pistol grip is more vertical. There are two solutions: my trigger has a re-shaped trigger bow, or you can add a trigger shoe. Both work, people prefer them for personal reasons, so I won't argue the point.
2. Adjustability of the trigger or a well done trigger job. Both will improve the pull.

The trigger shoe/reshaped trigger really improves ergonomics on any M14 with a pistol grip. It changes the direction of the trigger pull into a much more natural feel.
